Autism and hygiene
So, my son loves to be clean
He hates doing any type of personal hygiene.
Wiping his butt
All are a big ass issue with son
Mainly because personal hygiene takes time
Son has zero patience for just about anything
He'll attempt to brush but just chews relentlessly on the toothbrush.
He has 5 I buy them in bulk
He absolutely refuses to do this so I turned it into a game, we play barbershop and I wash his face thoroughly a few times a week
He has no clue how to comb/brush his hair
He hits himself in the head with his brush
I'm on hair grooming duty everyday
Son tries to dress himself
But usually gets shirts, underwear on backwards
Somedays he just doesn't want to wear clothes
So he'll refuse and procrastinate till last minute or I say fuck it and cancell something.
Son tries to do this but usually ends up with poo
Everywhere, toilet seat, walls, floors, himself etc..
The only thing he loves to do is wash up in the bathtub
But he refuses to sit down
He stands and rocks back n forth
I bought a special non slip bath mat
To keep him from slipping
It's the most stressful and scary thing to watch him rock in the tub.
It's all stressful and draining
I just want to hose him down a couple times a week to be done
